DreamWorks' Antz beat Disney/Pixar's A Bug's Life into theaters, and made a lot of money -- but then so did A Bug's Life. The most surprising things about the movies turned out to be how different they were, and that both were very good, though A Bug's Life does come out ahead overall, on DVD as well. The DVD of Antz has a kind of unattractive blurred quality, as if the transfer was made from a flashed print of the film, rather than being transferred digitally. There are DTS-encoded discs available, which is fine, but the movie depends more ...

Even on home video, this movie -- which like most big-scale films, still works better in theaters no matter how good your system -- retains its power and suspense. And the latter is Howard's finest accomplishment: the whole world knows that through a combination of luck, skill, training, ingenuity and focussed attention, the three Apollo 13 astronauts returned safely to Earth. But the movie still manages to be nail-bitingly suspenseful from almost the beginning until Tom Hanks' summing-up voiceover at the end. It's so engrossing as to be nearly hypnotic, with strong but self-effacing ...

title: Tenebrae function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Anthony Franciosa, John Saxon, Giuliano Gemma, Daria Nicolodi, Mirella D'Angelo, Veronica Lario, Christian Borromeo release year: 1982 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Anchor Bay Entertainment continues its practice of releasing cult-favorite horror and science fiction movies with this release of Dario Argento's Tenebrae, previously available in the U.S. only in a butchered version (18 minutes cut) under the title Unsane. The transfer is excellent, with the clear, brightly-lit but pastel colors of the film impressively intact. There's an alternate track in which journalist Loris Curci discusses the film with writer-director Argento and composer Claudio Simonetti, who worked several times with the director (previously as part of the group "Goblin"). One of the two behind-the-scenes sequences is particularly interesting, as it shows Argento and his crew using the versatile Louma crane during the shooting of the murder of the two lesbians.

Shull, Bobby Di Cicco, Howard Morris release year: 1984 film rating: Four stars sound/picture rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Splash was the first for many landmarks: the first PG-rated movie released by Disney studios, the first release under their Touchstone label, Tom Hanks’ first starring movie role, and Ron Howard’s first big-studio film as director. Howard had directed a Roger Corman low-budgeter and a couple of TV movies; Hanks had appeared in a TV movie and a little-known slasher/horror movie, He Knows You’re Alone. Daryl Hannah had made a few more movies, including a memorable appearance in Blade Runner.

Screenwriter David Webb Peoples (‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Unforgiven’) has come up with an interesting science-fiction/action framework that’s given a lively, technically adept workout by director Paul Anderson (of ‘Event Horizon,’ not to be confused with Paul Thomas Anderson of ‘Boogie Nights’). Even if the automatic weapons and explosions take over from the plot entirely for long stretches, this movie is engaging
